    Just install the plugin, set up the accounts for the users like anything else and make sure that you can access it from outside. Works just like outlook webmail if you will. You're just logging in through the web. So each user just uses their login account. Now there may be a bit more to it in omv with more than one user, so you may want to test that first because I'm not sure if they will all go into the same webdav folder or not if you use the individual home folder option which I think I saw somewhere. I don't use that so it may depend on how that's setup. I attached the image of the webdav in omv, it looks like you may be able to add all the different shares, but again, you will need to play with that as I don't have more than on and only set it up for me to test it.

    How is the performance of webdav? Looking through posts here, it looks
    like its not nearly as well supported as samba. I still need robust file
    permissions and user/pass authentication, which a post from 2015 says
    isn't supported yet?
    Could you link me to some further reading on how I can set up webdav
    with user/pass authentication and setting read/write permissions on a
    per-user and per-share basis?

    I see. I decided to see what else uses the sqlite 3 and it turns out that plexmedia uses that too. This is something I had also installed and removed. So I tried re-installing it in order to see if doing so would let me install urbackup. Unfortunately I get an error message when trying to install plexmedia too. So that will not install again either. After closing the window I get the following error.

    I guess I'll chime in here a bit since I find this thread a bit interesting. I'm curious about this "Also, I hear people say SMB is very insecure, but I know of a lot of Universities/Corporations that have clients map network drives through SMB" because I know that if you're within the network, you should always be able to map a network drive. You said you know they are doing it that, but how are they doing it? From outside a vpn seems to be more reasonable or webdav as mentioned before. You did mention that there's a lot of data which is the reason you want to map the drive. Once you are logged in with a vpn you have access to the whole network and work just as you are there if I remember correctly. It doesn't matter where each person is at unless they have a really slow line.

    That's interesting. Well, I can assure you that I have not knowingly installed anything myself, specially outside of omv. Now you do have me wondering what on earth could have caused that. I haven even used my nas until last night after I made all those updates within the gui whenever that was. This is something I need, so that's the reason I wouldn't mess with it unless it was a testing rig. Do you have any of the clean up commands? I'm just thinking of purging whatever may be leftover or whatever.

    No, what I meant by this was that it's probably something else that got updated like you mentioned earlier that may have caused the plugin not work. Hence the reason I suggested he wait to see if anything changes later on on the regular updates. I think right before I made the updates I saw a bunch of backport updates. I can't remember now, but I know there were quite a few. Apparently I'm not the only one having the problem though so there may be something else causing that and I can only think about the updates I did.

    I'm sure you could do a few things manually but I would suggest to just wait until the next omv update or updates since that's what seem to have changed this for me. I may be wrong but you never know. I'm only suggesting that since I don't manually change anything on the system individually and just use the plugins and updates on it.

    I haven't tried to install any of the desktop environments myself, but there were quite a few updates that came through so I just updated omv. All I did was uninstall the urbackup before so I couldn't tell you what changed and now I was just trying to install it again through the plugins as usual, after all these updates of course. It's no big deal but I just thought I let you guys know. I guess I learned my lesson not to just update this all willy nilly. LOL. Well I don't mind trying some things and letting you guys know if something is acting funky. Thanks for checking it though.

    I opened a terminal under winscp and ran that. I'm still not used to login into the nas command prompt so bear with me. If this is not correct let me know. This is what I got from here.

    This is what it has. It looks like the same example above except I'm in the US.

    Nice, I finally got some problems sorted out here on my side. I got a new UPS, the old one was not staying on battery power, then I found out that the actual outlet was bad and had to be changed because it was just very old and too lose. After this, I notice with the nas on, tv, camera dvr and cameras, and chrome, and AP and the small switch, total power is about 90w. So it's nowhere near yours but I did have more things running. Now I just keep the nas and tv off until I need them. So it looks like it's only sipping 27 watts of power. So I guess it's not bad if I leave it off since I don't need it on all the time.

    I found my way here as I have built out a similar solution that you had listed in your blog (can't post comments there btw). Norco ITX-S8, AS-Rock C236. 400WPSU, 5x4TB HGST NAS drives.

    I'm able to get the BIOS screen (and I was able to install FreeNAS on a 2nd USB), but no drives are recognized. All the drives are lit, everything is plugged in...but the BIOS doesn't recognize them (I did do a direct connect to SATA Port 8 and it did see the drive).

    Did you have a similar issue when building out your solution?

    Hey slayer, the only thing I can think of when you say none of the hard drives are recognized is that maybe you got the wrong cable from the back plane to the sata ports. Make sure that you have the reverse cable for this case. If you don't then it will never see any of the drives. If that is correct make sure that you update the bios, it's the first thing I do just to make sure. Once you are there make sure to use the optimum defaults to start with. The other setting to check would be the drives in the bios. Don't turn that raid setting in the bios, just the sata settings. Use the software raid that comes with openmedia vault. I'm just going by memory, but you'll see the settings in the bios. If the drives work, then it's just something like what I mentioned. I would also check all the bays with the same sata cable to make sure all are working, then plug all the rest. You just have to make sure your back plane is fine before assuming it's all good. This is just what I did, so make sure you do too. Most likely it's fine, but I like to know for sure. I hope this helps.
    As for the comments on there, yeah I had problems with that too, I told them but I have no idea why that no longer works unfortunately.

    Thank you! I tried that before stopping the service and after. Neither worked, but this was my fault. I apparently forgot to enable job after creating it. I just noticed this and changed it. Everything worked fine after that. Man, I'm feeling old today. LOL. So for those are are just starting to use this, make sure that little circle is green before you start the scan.

    I was trying to scan one of my shares with the anivirus plugin and I got an error instead. This is the very first time I try scan anything. The settings are pretty much the defaults.
    Here's the text part since I can't get all of it in the window no matter how wide I make it.
